Today, the Entertainment Management Association commented, "Eunjung has been preparing all this time for her part in this drama. She has already completed the poster shoot as well as the press conference. She even canceled her other activities to be dedicated to this drama."

They continued, "On August 21, the production team announced that they will be removing her from the drama. They said that if she did not voluntarily leave the drama that they would force her to leave. Eunjung's side did not understand why she had to leave and asked for a reason. The production team did not give her a clear answer. They instead talked about the contract issues."

The association also added that if production crews continue to act in this manner, what agency would want to hire their actors to these productions anymore.

If the agency were to have a solid reason for their decision it would have been ok. However, in the case of Eunjung, they did not give a clear answer and unexpectedly announced this decision to the media without letting Eunjung know about it first.

Eunjung had already signed the contract and paid filmed the first part of the drama. Eunjung's side revealed that they will get to the bottom of this and review the contract issues as well.
